No, I just administer them.

It's my own kink and I'm sticking with
it. *foo++-=*--bar**--quuxA-*--baz**quuxB++; is much worse, and I've
written that too (although not seriously.  It was in the new mdct).

My 'style' is K&R standard except that I dislike spacing things out so
far that what could fit on one line takes up half the screen. I like
having as much functionality as possible visible together. I don't
intentionally obfuscate, it's just a religious distinction.

Feel free to write new code in whatever way you like.  Don't reformat
existing code, please.
